Brett’s iTip: Controlling Background App Refresh. It is disputed whether this will really be necessary, or save battery power, but I jumped into the setting to control “Background App Refresh” on my iPhone. When you switch out of an app, it goes into a suspended state which means if you jump BACK to that app it will need to refresh … unless you turn on Background App Refresh which means the app will check for new updates and content and be ready to go. This may “potentially” use more battery but you can control this by going to Settings - General - Background App Refresh and turn it completely off, or only toggle on certain apps. Wish they had a way to turn ALL off and then let me toggle on ONLY the ones I want.

Jeff’s iTip: AirDrop Settings. You can also set your AirDrop options in Control Center:
1) Swipe down from the upper-right corner of the screen to open Control Center. Or on your iPhone 8 or earlier, swipe up from the bottom of the screen.
2) Press firmly or touch and hold the network settings card in the upper-left corner.
3) Touch and hold the AirDrop button
If the person you're sharing content with is in your Contacts, you'll see an image with their name. If they're not in your Contacts, you'll see just their name without an image
There are three settings you can choose from: Receiving Off, Contacts Only, and Everyone.
